my gynae also told me to that from week 28 onwards. she mentioned bird nest will not harm the baby, but may increase chances of the child getting asthma/allergies/eczema when he/she grows up. so i listened to her and stopped. used to take weekly from 4th month. also I cough more after taking brewed bird nest and my protein level is noticeable in urine. not sure if its cus of the bird nest or not. =Xmy TCM sinseh told me to take bird nest only at 3rd Trimester, but she didn't tell me why
Wow, so it's really true. Maybe try to nourish your elder one's lungs so she can be more strong? my daughter get cough easily especially after eating chicken rice, not sure why also =X But I only took bottled bird nest after week 28 also, she also had eczema during her first year of age.lynn, to my surprise, I just know about this! my eldest daughter now 4yrs coming to 5 had eczema when she was couple of mths old and she did develop asthma around her 2-3 yrs.... and nowadays she still have the phlegms when she's overactive... oh my and I DID consume birdnest during my pregnancy, specially on my early stage...coz it kinda helps me when I hv headaches (belive it or not, it does helps me, I didn't take panadol or anything else only bird nest)...I took the bottles one from eu yan sang, and also drank the brewed bird nest...... my second dd, I didn't drink as much I dunno why maybe coz I very seldom hv headaches....and my 2nd dd was ok, no eczema or asthmatic... if only I knew bout this...haiz...
what i know is, some says eating birdnest during 2nd trim will benefit the baby, i.e baby's complexion very swee. if taken during 3rd trimester, the mother will benefit. but my gynae says if want then take during 3rd trim, to reduce the chances of the baby developing allergies/eczema.I heard from my sister-in-law. She was told by the gynae that bird nest will bring benefits to the mother but not the baby. Is that true?
You should take birds nest in the morning when its empty for the best results! your stomach will be hungry for nutrients and it'll be able to absorb all the goodness of the birds nest.Should we take bird nest in the morning or at night or best results?
